As soon as we saw each other she said:
“Mauricio, I am one of your followers and really enjoy your writings; you are a great writer!”
“Not really, I write like a 5 year old but I do enjoy what I do,” I replied.
Before I even finished the sentence she said “You are right… but you have great ideas.”
“You are right” she said, she didn’t even try to sugar coat it like: “you are not that bad, for a non-native English speaker, you are doing a great job;” she spoke the truth. She knows that my writing skills are not the best, Ha ha.
Here are my thoughts:
If we wait until we are “ready” to begin building our dreams, our future, we will be waiting forever. There will always be a reason, an excuse not to do it.
I do not have the money, I do not have the time, I am too young or too old, I do not know how to write, people will not be able to understand me and so on.
To motivate people is my passion; I Love Failure is my tool. Yes, my writing skills are poor but my thoughts and concepts are powerful. People can relate to them and I do believe that I am making an impact.
You tell me: Should I have waited to promote my ideas until I learned how to write?
I am writing about this to encourage you to break the fear of just doing! I am a Latino, with a very heavy accent, dyslexic, and with speech issues who decided to become a writer. Once I realized that I do not need to have the perfect English or the perfect writing skills, I felt empowered to start.
I am no longer waiting for a solution for my problems, because they will never go away; I will find a way to work around them!
